There is more to Taylar Cycles than many know...

In 2011 I brought this BTR racer to Dan to fix. I previously had "the other guy" do the fabrication and it was HORRIBLE. Dan helped me with those issues.

Shortly after, he did this one for me. (I didn't know better at the time, excuse the Chinagirl motor :)

Then we designed a better one with a GC 160. This was my baby. It ran great and strong for over 5 years. I recently sold her for way more than I paid!

Then I brought him my 1957 Moto Guzzi Lodola. I brought him the dustbin and he caged it to the frame and re-balanced the frame pitch and made the rear section.

Wanting more, I brought him a project that I designed from multiple cycles. It is a Yamaha base, NSU Sportmax 500 fairing, TZ tank highly modified, custom rear end that was a female dog to get right. (I will NEVER do that again!) and a 1955 BMW TT racer look overall. I spent a lot of time designing this "Gerpanese" and Dan did an AWESOME job. It is exactly like I wanted. There are some cool aspects to this bike.

I bought this one for my son in 2016. It was a build Dan did many years ago for a guy back East. I bought it from the guy and had it shipped back. I was going to flip it but my son really wanted it. Now we go riding a lot. My son took this to his first show and won! Brat.

Dan has built me sign cans using real steel and traditional metal fab. I have painted a few of his signs. They have all been sold. These are the ones I kept.
(He made me this oval can. I painted it "Indian" and added lights. Sold it)

I designed this sign to go over my gate. Dan built it and I painted it. Turns on automatically each night and has a great patina after 5 years

In 2016 I designed a build using a 1916 Iver Johnson cycle. The tank was cool but I didn't want it cantilever. I had Dan arch it more and have more symmetry. We ran the cables through the tank and added a ton of real crap to it. This was Dan's first build with the Honda 5 speed clone. It is very reliable and rides like a Cadillac. I have ridden hundreds of miles and it is very comfortable. It should go around 80-90 but that would be at 8500 rpms. Yeah, Im not feelin' too good about that.

MANY years ago I fell in love with the early Morgan 3 cyclecars. Dan and I have discussed building one for years. We actually got started on the project 3 times over the years but it fell through.

NOT THIS TIME! in August we started a 100% scratch build. Here is one pic. I will post finished pics when she is done. It is a BEAST!

As you can see, Dan does MUCH more than tribute cycles. I say he change his name to Cool Old Metal :)

I love the signs! My pics are going to so lame compared to the previous post but I took pictures yesterday!
This motorcycle is available if someone would like to own one of Dan's incredible motorcycles. I will be driving to California a few times in the coming months and can deliver.

Yeah Shawn, I was thinking about it. Not sure this is the proper market for it. I wanted to post the pics regardless and just wanted to make note of it on the odd chance someone was interested. I still wanted to show it off haha
